Konami and Everi deliver cashless experience to Sky River Casino


California’s newest land-based gaming establishment, Sky River Casino, is to adopt a cashless experience for customers courtesy of an alliance with Konami Gaming and Everi.

The venue, which is located 15 miles south of the California capital Sacramento and recently opened its doors, is aiming to debut a “true cashless experience” on its gaming floor via Everi’s digital CashClub Wallet and Konami’s Synkros casino management system.

“As Sky River Casino officially opens and guests are stepping into this brand new 100,000 square foot destination for the first time, they can experience the convenience and advanced player-friendly features of a complete mobile ecosystem, via integrated CashClub Wallet-enabled digital funding at slots and tables, and contactless point-of-sale payments outside of the gaming floor,” explained Darren Simmons, executive vice president and fintech business leader at Everi.

“Activity across the guest experience is continuously captured, recognised, and rewarded by powerful integrations between Everi’s industry-leading cashless payments solutions and Konami’s robust Synkros systems environment.”

As a result of the collaboration, guests will be able to access a mix of digital, mobile, traditional and contactless payment options across the destination’s 2,000 slot machines, 80 table games and 12 dining experiences. 

“It is incredibly impressive to see the historic opening of Sky River Casino made even larger by an industry-leading technology approach,” noted Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief operating officer at Konami Gaming. 

“Wherever the transaction, with whatever payment method, guests have the opportunity to enjoy robust, real-time loyalty rewards and the use of integrated, digital account funds across all casino touchpoints.”

Sky River Casino, located in Elk Grove, is owned by the Wilton Rancheria Tribe and managed by Boyd Gaming Corporation.

“At Sky River, we have dedicated significant attention to creating memorable experiences for guests,” said Chris Gibase, president and chief operating officer at Sky River Casino. 

“By investing in cutting-edge cashless technology that brings convenience and innovation to payments, loyalty, and rewards, Sky River allows guests to focus on the entertainment, using whichever touchpoints they prefer.”
